Looking for cotton candy in Montreal

ras01 Oct 14, 2010 11:58 AM

Does anyone know where I might find some cotton candy in Montreal? I'm looking for the actual fluffy sugary stuff, not to rent a cotton candy machine. I'm in the Plateau, but would pretty much go anywhere on the island if they've got cotton candy. Any help would be very much appreciated. Thank you!

      Try contacting Sparkles in NDG. If they don't have it, they might be able to point you in the right direction.

          The bulk food store/candy store at the back of the Faubourg on Saint Catherine (cnr Rue St Mathieu) has a cotton candy machine at the fron which, presumably, they use to make it fresh if you request it?

            Cool, it'd be great if you'd report back here, may help others in the future. Thanks & good luck!

          I've seen it often at Videotron when renting movies.

              Wow, thanks everyone. I checked with Sparkles in NDG (5615 Monkland, for future reference) and they do have cotton candy - three kinds, apparently (I assume pink, blue and...something else exciting). I'll check at the Faubourg on Ste Cat and Videotron (DDO is a bit far, but thank you!) and report back soon. Thanks again, this is fantastic!

                Beware the Sparkles store (in a good way)- I have spent so much money there on amazing treats - they have an outstanding selection, and everything I have ever bought there was really fresh. Curses.
